The facelift for the Hyundai Creta has been launched in 2018 and has given the buyers a new option. These cars offer a powerful solution and something that can carry a family in comfort.
But it is time for the two most popular cars in the category – the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and the Hyundai Creta to be pit against each other.
Creta vs Vitara Brezza
The Hyundai Creta gets a larger grille and the bumper has been redesigned. Thus the car has a wider look with new fog lamps. They have replaced the horizontal ones on the previous generation of Creta.
A reworked skid plate is there on the bumper. The front has now more of a blacked-out theme than the bold chrome treatment that was available before. The side profile is quite the same though. The wheel designs have been updated.
The compact SUV now gets new alloy wheels after the makeover. There is a glossy black finish along with sinewy wheel arches. In all the variants, you would find the chrome grille and the back door chrome garnish. There is a hatch opening the boot lid at the rear, a silver bash plate and spoiler.
The Creta has a 5-seat layout and the interiors now have a dual tone. Some of the recent features include the touchscreen infotainment system, the automatic temperature control and 4 speakers and 2 tweeters.
The steering wheel is now wrapped in leather with audio and Bluetooth controls. The driver seat is 6-way electronically adjustable. The console armrest has a leather finish cup holder in the rear seat. A sunroof and rear AC vents are also featured.
The Vitara Brezza is not quite different from the other cars from the company. The car gets electrically folding OVRMs and push start-stop function. There is also a climate control. The leather seats give a premium feel. The car is accompanied by a 7-inch touchscreen multi-display screen.
The Hyundai Creta is being powered by the 1.4L CRDi diesel engine that offers 88 bhp of maximum power and a peak torque of 219 Nm. There are upper variants as well, which offer a 1.6L dual VTVT petrol engine churning out 121 bhp of power and 151 Nm of peak torque.
The 1.6L CRDi VGT diesel engine offers 126 bhp of power and 260 Nm of peak torque. The cars get two transmission options – the 6-speed manual transmission and the 6-speed automatic transmission.
The Vitara Brezza comes with only one option, the 1.3-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, which can also be spotted on the Ciaz. This churns out 89 bhp of power and a peak torque of 200 Nm. The engine on the compact SUV also offers an optional 5-speed automatic gearbox.
The Hyundai Creta offers ABS with EBD, hill assist control, vehicle stability management, electronic stability control as well as static bending lights.
The Vitara Brezza, on the other hand, has ISOFIX child restraint system, ABS with EBD, dual front airbags, high-speed warning alert, force limiters and reverse parking sensors.
It would be quite tough to decide between these two cars. However, the Creta offers different engine options with a better power output and the Vitara Brezza is more focused on increasing fuel efficiency.
